Access to monitor fibre before year-end

20 December 2013, 15:50

Nairobi - Access Kenya, the broadband firm, aims to establish a monitoring system for its entire 450km internet carrier fibre optic network in Nairobi and Mombasa before the end of the year.

The company's Managing Director, Jonathan Somen, stated that the system, whose installation began last month, would proactively detect faults that hinder effective transmission of data.

Installation of the system will help check on costly cuts on its infrastructure, the executive said.

"With this system, we can now coordinate network faults and better map distance to resolve interruptions much faster even as we expand our metropolitan coverage" said Somen.

He also observed that 90 percent of disruptions to their infrastructure came from careless contractors and acts of vandalism.

Access Kenya earlier in the year delisted from the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) after a massive buyout by Dimension Data, a rival technology company.

Then, it promised its customers better and reliable internet services.

The company enjoys huge client market in the Kenyan corporate world and targets to achieve the goal of retaining as well as increasing client base in the country's largest cities and town centres.
